A Detailed Look at the MP3 World

from the what-are-all-those-companies-doing? dept

The Industry Standard is taking a look at some of the companies in the MP3 world beyond Napster and MP3.com. It seems like there are a lot of companies with a lot of different solutions, but no one seems to really know how it’s all going to shake out. I’m glad to see a number of different business models, but it’s not clear how carefully most of these companies have thought through their business model. What’s likely to happen is that one of them will stumble on a reasonable solution and all the others will quickly become clones with slight modifications.
